Christmas is less than two months away, and I like to plan ahead. This year I want to make a number of the gifts I give, and I’m looking for ideas from you.
This summer I shared with you my review of MadeOn Lotion. The more I have used it, the more I love it. My heels have continued to be free of dry cracked skin, and now that the weather is cooler I just love using the Au Chocolat lotion bar on my hands. Not only does it smell great, it keeps my hands soft and the beeswax provides a layer of protection that I can feel when I wash my hands.
I also love the fact that you can buy a do it yourself kit from them to make the lotion yourself. I recently ordered the kit and gift giving ebook. After reading the ebook, I ordered additional supplies, and I can’t wait to make chocolate peppermint lotion bars, chocolate body mousse, and peppermint lip balm to give as gifts. (If you are a family member reading this, please act surprised.)
That’s on the top of my gift giving list, but I would also like to make food gifts. In the past I have made:
Roasted Cinnamon Nuts – This recipe is great using almonds or pecans. They have gone over very well with people I have given them to, and more than one has asked for the recipe.
Vanilla Extract – This takes several months to reach it’s best potential, but if you started now, it would be well on its way by Christmas.
Candy Coated Pretzels – These take a little time to make, but the kids really enjoyed them. I made some gluten free and some not.
I would like to give different food gifts this year, but I’m looking for ideas other than cookies, fudge and quick breads. What are your favorite homemade gluten-free gift giving food ideas? What have you given or received that was well liked?
